    That Hague question threw me, I thought the US did not sign that.

    We didn't. But the question wasn't if we signed it but what it did. And, anyway, we've been acting as if we signed it. :rolleyes:

    I didn't know what guns the SS were issued, what guns the (NY?) PD could choose from, or that Sig was home based in a New England state.

    I shoulda known Sig. The other two? No reason why I should know it.

  6. I thought Iraq had more guns per capita than we did. Also didn't know what NYPD couldn't shoot

    A few I guessed on. I just figured what would make NO sense, and chose that.

    Like, the NYPD won't allow the same gun the US military uses.:rolleyes:

    I got 13 out of 17. Missed the two about gun manufacturer locations, the one on what the SS carries, and the caliber of the m1 garand (I guessed .308 :rolleyes:).

    Rookie!:rolleyes:

    :p

    The .308 Winchester was introduced in 1952, and went NATO 7.62X51 in '54, IIRC, but the Garand had already served over a decade by then.;)

    and the one i missed was I said that wesson had been granted the pattent for a revolving gun like an idiot. I don't know why I thought it was a trick question but I felt stupid.

    the worst part was I read it thought colt and still chose wesson.

    Ballistically speaking, you were right. The .308 mimics the ballistics of the 30-06 but is a tad shorter, which means it loads from mags easier, and is a tad more accurate. Those are important reasons in why it was chosen to supplant the 30-06 cartridge (according to what I've read).

    I always wonder about that. It seems everyone that says that is comparing their new wonder gun short bull barreled Savage .308 "sniper rifle" to some guys dad's converted Mauser 30-06 hunting rifle.:rolleyes:

    And yes, I know on paper, the .308 "should" be more accurate. But on paper, bumblebees can't fly, either.;)

    I'd love to see a "test" where someone got "identical" guns and compared them...yes, I know one is long action and one is short action...but if they had the same barrels, triggers, scopes, etc...I'd be more likely to believe the claim.

    Most of them I knew, but did guess on a few. I did know the caliber of the garand. I got the Secret Service one right but not the police one.

    That's because it IS a single action!:p

    Unless you count partial cocking of the striker as double action.:eek:

    But I knew the Glock fanbois INSIST it isn't, it's a SAFE ACTION, or a PRE-SET trigger action, or some other stupid, made up thing!:rolleyes:
